Author: Tom Dingley | Thursday 3rd August 2023
Along with the new album, N-Dubz recently announced that they will be performing at five open-air headline shows taking place next summer across the UK including a huge show at London’s Gunnersbury Park. Following their momentous return with a sold out four-night run at The O2, demand has never been higher for the London pop heroes. This open-air show at Gunnersbury Park will be the band’s only hometown show in 2023, so be sure to get your tickets before they sell out by visiting Ticketmaster.
N-Dubz returning sent a generation into a frenzy because there was a time where you would not be able to go anywhere without hearing an N-Dubz tune. They were being played on the radio, their songs have been used in movie soundtracks, they were getting played at motives up and down the country and not to mention selling out shows everywhere. So to celebrate this run of headline shows and their only hometown show of the year, we are going to have a look at 5 of N-Dubz top tunes - in no particular order.
1. Playing With Fire feat. Mr Hudson
This track has to be involved in anybody's list of N-Dubz best songs. This track was one of those songs you could not get out of your head, and you would hear it everywhere for a lengthy period of time. This track has amassed nearly 36 million streams on Spotify alone, was all over the radio when it released, and is just a banger. The back and forth on the first verse between Dappy and Mr Hudson, Tulisa coming in on the pre-chorus, and then the tempo increase on the iconic chorus - a chorus which everyone still knows word for word to this day.
This track is one of the main examples of Tulisa taking centre stage and showcasing her vocal ability, as well as shining a light on the ability of the trio to tell a story with their lyrics. The story is a tale that is all too familiar for some, and N-Dubz did a great job of painting a picture of the situation. The track had it all in terms of replay value, relatability, and each member of the group had a part of the story to tell. On a side note, it features that legendary 'name's Shaniqua and what' ad lib which can never be forgotten.
